    The article is a few months old.

    Still, I fled the SBC for an IFB church. I could not be happier. I don't know if the SBC is beyond salvaging, but for small fries like me looking for a doctrinally conservative church, there seems few options.

    The article states, "Many churches have left the SBC over this issue." Any idea to what extent? Even what might be numerically "many" I would assume is likely comparatively "few" in respect to the total number of SBC cooperating churches (which the SBC website numbers at over 47,000 churches).

    Thanks.

    Many = few?
    LOL, the squawking by Pullet and Hen is getting to be something else.
    Oh brother.

    JD Hall on that blog (his) trumpeted his departure from the SBC last year:

    On Leaving the SBC, J.D. Hall, April 9, 2018

    He left it several years ago too:

    Why I've Left the Convention, J.D. Hall, February 28, 2013

    Having burned bridges with Southern Baptists (and so many others) with his antics, Hall is now "wishing fundamentalism would let me back in":

    Confessions of a Calvinist Fundamentalist, JD Hall, October 1, 2018
    No! We don't want you either.

    I see yesterday (Feb. 9) Hall was on a roll posting Sunday sermons. He featured Jack Hyles, Bob Jones, Ian Paisley, and John R. Rice!

    I am not sure about the SBC itself, but I do think we have to be very careful not to lump all of the churches that are members of the SBC into one group theologically. There are things they agree on, but they are also independent baptist churches. I believe the best thing is to ignore the "SBC" and the "IFB" to judge the church as it is.

    Yes, most things are relative. If, for example, 1000 churches left the SBC over this, that would seem like "many" to me. Yet, percentage-wise, that would only be about 2% (if me and my poor math skills figured that correctly) -- which is relatively "few".
    Nevertheless, one can find things reported there that the "true believers" (in the SBC) may not want to mention or let get out. Then once you have heard about it, you can research it elsewhere.

    According to this link there are 47,456. - so if 1,000 left that would be: 2.10721%

    There many links that allege Beth Moore as a false teacher.

    Yesterday, Beth Moore was on Janet Parshall's In The Market radio program. She often has authors on, about their books. Janet was out and Ed Stetzer subbed for her. In the introduction, he positively gushed over Beth and her book. She spent 10 days vacation in a vineyard region in Italy and now fully understands the meaning of John 15.

    the Apostles had it all wrong, as they "only" had Jesus teaching them, and then the Holy Spirit inspiring them!

    No, she is not another Joyce Meyers. And she is not a Charismatic.

    If she were, the SBC would not have embraced her in the first place.

    So the Sbc main problem with her is that she has been elevated to position of teaching then?
